Re: RMS to PMPO

You cant convert between the two.
RMS stands for Root Mean Square. First a varying quanity is squared, then the average is taken, then the square root. This gives an average "typical" value.
PMPO stands for Peak Music Power Output. There is no industry standard for PMPO so you don't really have any way to find out what it means. PMPO in all likelyhood varies between manufactures, and was calculated by their marketing department. Meaning they picked a number that sounded really cool, then figured out a formula that would result in that number.
